Couples Shoots.

If you're reading this you're most likely a couple who have expressed an interest in posing for one of my "couples" shoots. I thought it would be best to show some examples here so that, if you decide that you'd like to try it, you'll know exactly what you're letting yourselves in for...

My shoots are actually explicit, and you, the models, would be having real, actual sex during the shoot. These are not simulated, they are real...

Although my couples shoots are explicit, I try my best to shoot them as artistically as possible.

Typically, a shoot such as this one would take between 60 to 90 minutes to complete...

I only ever shoot with REAL couples, as I want to portray genuine passion and emotion...

It would be easier on me if I simply booked "porn stars" to shoot with, as they are well used to "performing" in front of others, but the fact is that they are merely "performing". I shoot to portray emotion, passion, love, and purity of a couple's relationship. Porn stars cannot bring these ingredients to my shoots, and therefore I prefer to shoot genuine couples who have not tried this style of shoot before.

I never use the model's real names, and I am VERY selective who sees my work. Discretion is therefore assured to the models, who remain anonymous. Similiarly, I expect full discretion from my models. As a photographer from a small town in Ireland, I prefer that this side of my photographic career is kept as low key as possible.

I fully appreciate that this style of photography is not to everybody's taste, and therefore will understand that many couples are unwilling to pose in this manner. If that is the case, I hope that I have not offended you by offering you this shoot. However, if you ARE interested in this project, I can tell you that the couple shown here (who have given permission to be shown as examples of this type of shoot) thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and are keen to do more shoots with me in this genre. The girl shown here is a semi professional "art nude" model who had never before posed for an explicit shoot, and still maintains her limits to most other photographers at an art nude, non explicit level. Even though this shoot has been published internationally, nobody has recognised her and her anonimity is assured. Her husband had never posed for a photoshoot prior to this.

I have done a great number of these shoots, and am delighted to say that ALL the models that took part in this project to date have been thrilled with the experience and are very happy with the results. They have ALL asked for (and been given) copies of the photographs, and many have had the photos printed into "bedside" books as memories of their passion. ALL of the couples involved have expressed a desire to work with me again, and have remarked on how the experience had been very positive for their love lives, enriching their confidence and strengthening their bonds as couples.

I hope that this example will answer most of your questions, but if you have any questions or queries that remain unanswered, please feel free to contact me and I will answer as best I can. Please note that this particular shoot was carried out in my studio in a "low key" style, but I also carry out couples shoots in hotels, in couples homes, and in many different styles.
